3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. Enjoyed this one at the Brew Crew Bash in Ann Arbor on May 21. This one was poured from a tiny can. I think itís 250 mL in size. The pour is a darker amber color with a pretty thick medium khaki colored head that falls down softly. The nose on this is a little abrasive. There is a strong toffee and sweet fruitiness to it. The malts are nicely present and itís got a little bitterness that seems to be out of place. The flavor is pretty sugary and continuing of the sweetness. There is a lot of brown sugar and dark fruits. The toffee and malts really come through about half way through and it finishes pretty bitter. There is a pretty strong resin that isnít overly present throughout the first half of this one. The mouth feel is a thin and watery, but it does carry a nice soft carbonation to help out with the viscosity. There is a little lingering spice on the aftertaste that is different, and helps break up the sweetness a bit. This one isnít too bad.

Poured from the can into a tulip glass. The appearance is a cloudy dark amber with a medium sized off-white head. The aroma is malt with some vanilla. The taste is a thick sweet malt that quickly warms you from the alcohol.
